On top of that, you started out like the rest of the newcomers and now talks that you are looking for better PPV buys and don't wants to fight Machida but you got a hype machine fighter like Chael that can bring the numbers that you are looking for.
Its not a smart business move IMO if you are looking for money fight. On top of that, you just screwed all your fans that just ready to fly to see you fight and you are not injured but you got a bunch of guys willing to fight you to save the card.
Do you honestly think these other fighters would of gotten more money without a main event and sponsorships?
Think about it.
I didnt say i was clearing Jones and Jackson for all the blame. But to say everything is their fault is not right either, as that is said..
do i think Jon Jones should have taken the fight? Yes i do.When your boss ask you for a favor ofcourse you say yes.
I think Jones needs to remember what UFC have donne for him.. this is a horrible way to treat your own boss and company,this is not how you should act.No doubt a very selfish act!
but we need to remember how Dana is sometimes..i dont trust all what Dana is saying and i surley do not judge somebody just because the one side said it.
There is two sides to this and before i make my judgment i want to wait and se what is being said from booth sides
